Seamless panoramas but no in-camera stitiching

If the wide angle end of the zoom isn’t enough, you can create panoramic shots using the P90. The process is a little tricky, as the P90 uses a transparent overlay for lining up shots rather than a solid line, but with a bit of practice, you can create some nice effects. Stitching is done on your PC using software supplied by Nikon.

On the ball: sport continuous mode captures the action
Click for scaled QuickTime image sequence

Sport continuous mode offers a top speed of 15fps for up to 45 frames and a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1536. As these sequences show, it really captures the action well.

The control dial is handy when using manual and semi-manual modes, but there’s no function button. The multi-controller offers quick access to timer, macro, flash and exposure compensation modes, but for all other settings, you have to use the menu button. If you want to say, change the ISO speed, you press the menu button, scroll down the shooting menu, select ISO and then select the speed you want.
